Posted On May 27, 2011
Although many parents don’t take their kid’s party seriously enough, such an event is not only worth having but also requires a great deal of planning. If you don’t invest time preparing it, you shouldn’t be surprised that it turns out to be a real nightmare. Sometimes, children are more pretentious than the adults.
It’s clear that your tastes are generally different than your children’s likes and dislikes. This only means you need to ask them how they’d want their party to be. If the case, explain that the budget is tight and then agree on affordable arrangements. Furthermore, remember that you must glow on the day of the party. If you’re a mother and intend to plan a party soon, then do your best to look good, no matter how busy you are before and throughout the celebration.
If you get him involved in some aspects of the party, you’ll ensure at least some of his wishes are fulfilled. Parents often disagree with their kids’ tastes but on such an occasion it’s good to please them, even if only partly. If the budget doesn’t allow too many expenses, you should explain the situation but at same time try to find cheaper alternatives. You don’t want him to be disappointed either. The guest list is important so include only close friends who are about the same age. When you send invitations out make it clear you need a confirmation as soon as possible. The rest of the preparations depend on the number of attendees. You’ll either cater for the children or cook the food yourself; hence you need to know how much to order or buy. Why spend more than necessary? With respect to the drinks, don’t leave fizzy drinks out but opt for natural alternatives and prepare non-alcoholic cocktails for more fun. Parties are supposed to be fun as this is their purpose, to offer entertainment.
When it comes to children, entertainment is usually about magic and various games. Kids love magic tricks and the like so hiring a magician will be a wise decision. If he costs too much, maybe your friends are willing to help out. They could dress up and learn some magic tricks for the children’s sake. If you intend to have game prizes, everybody will have to receive something so make sure this actually happens. Otherwise, the disappointment will be huge. Children notice little details so don’t underestimate them.
Any party is about having fun so the right activities will spice things up. A magician will do wonders but if you can’t afford one, ask your friends to dress up. Fancy costumes appeal to children as they are crazy about magic. If you’re lucky, one of your friends may even be willing to play the part of the magician. In any case, arrange for games and activities that are attractive. You could even have prizes but if you go for this alternative, buy enough presents for everyone. Look in gift shops as they sometimes offer fantastic inexpensive things.
